Motor protection relays with Bluetooth technology
Littelfuse’s MP8000/MP8100 series Bluetooth-enabled motor protection relay is designed to allow maintenance personnel to communicate with the relay from up to 30 feet away using an app on an iPhone or Android smartphone or tablet computer. It is designed to enhance worker safety in applications such as conveyor systems, HVAC equipment, saws and grinders, fan motors, and pumps employed in manufacturing, oil & gas, water/wastewater, and mines. The MP8000/MP8100 relay combines the tools necessary to monitor motor overload, voltage, phase loss and reversal, voltage and current unbalance, power monitoring, and underload in one package. It is designed for single- or three-phase systems with operating voltages of 90 to 690 Vac. Although the Bluetooth interface can be used when paired with a smartphone or tablet, the MP8000/MP8100 also features an Ethernet port that can connect to a PC or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. It also supports data logging through a PC with optional LFS-MP8000 software. The MP8000 and MP8100 both offer remote wired communication via Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP; the MP8100 also enables communication via RS-485 and CAN bus interfaces.
